I will definitely make this again - it was the first time had tasted or cooked with fava beans. Yum! I used fresh ones from the farmer's market - I also used fresh tomatoes, parsley, thyme & oregano from my own garden. I only chilled it for 10 minutes - I think an hour would make the romaine quite soggy - it tasted great as is. Maybe I'll add some feta cheese next time!

This was refreshing! Perfect for summer picnic or back yard dinner. I used fresh basil, oregano, thyme.

This was delicious!! I made it with items from my CSA box. I had to use black olives since I was out of Kalamata, but it was still good!! Next time I think I will mix up everything except the lettuce so that I can make leftovers easier. The lettuce was soggy and wilty when leftover.... but still good!! I did top mine with pink shrimp mean and feta for dinner and just ate it plain for lunch the next day! Will be making again soon!! Always looking for new ways to use those Fava beans!! :-)

This was the first, and will probably be the last time I ever ate a Fava Bean, I did not care for them at all, so next time I make this recipe I will make it with Lima Beans instead. Other than that the flavor and texture of the salad was good...and will try it again.
